Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University took an active participation in the work of the V BRICS International Municipal Forum. The stand of the Polytechnic University has become one of the centers of business activity and a place of attraction for thousands of visitors who want to see the unique developments of SPbPU.
The world-class scientific center of St. Petersburg Polytechnic University “Advanced digital technologies” (NTsMU) co-organized one of the events of the V BRICS International Municipal Forum. Vice-Rector for Digital Transformation of SPbPU Alexey Borovkov and Head of the Directorate of NCMU SPbPU Oleg Rozhdestvensky held a session “Immersion in Industry 4.0. What will our life be like in the world of new technologies?
The key topic of the session was a new approach to production, based on the massive introduction of information technology into industry and its impact on the way of life of society. The session paid special attention to the issue of choosing new technologies for economic development in the conditions of the fourth industrial revolution.
The event was attended by industry representatives and scientists from Russia, China, Iran and other partner countries. The session was conducted in Russian and English.
The report of the Vice-Rector for Digital Transformation of SPbPU Alexey Borovkov on the integration of digital technologies into production, in particular on digital twins as the flagship technology of digital engineering for economic development, opened the session: In the digital transformation of business models, digital twins play a critical role, ensuring guaranteed and reserved development companies. The best solutions are waiting in the wings depending on market conditions. Digital platform for the development and application of digital twins CML-Bench® was created at the Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University and has no analogues either in Russia or in the world. The platform presents more than 319 thousand solutions for industry for the period from 2015 to 2023, emphasized Alexey Borovkov.
The speaker noted that digital twin technology optimizes the entire process of creating a product, allowing testing on digital stands and test sites, but having a connection with the real product at all stages of its life cycle: development, testing, operation.
Digital twin technology is widely used in many industries: engine building, aircraft manufacturing, shipbuilding, nuclear industry, oil and gas industry, medical engineering. As part of the fourth industrial revolution, I will especially emphasize the key role of digital platforms and digital twin technology in the development of high-tech industries,” summed up the Vice-Rector for Digital Transformation of SPbPU.
The speech by the head of the Representative Office of the State Grid Corporation of China in Russia, Ou Xiaoming, touched on digital transformation in the field of energy networks based on the production experience of the largest energy company in China.
President Xi Jinping has suggested that big cities can become “smarter” by modernizing urban governance through big data, cloud computing, artificial intelligence and other means. Digital transformation not only changes the shape of the development of the energy system, but also changes the shape of the development of cities, laying the foundation for changing people’s lifestyles, the speaker concluded.
Director of the Department of Digital Transformation of the Nizhny Novgorod Administration, Marat Fatkhullin, shared in his report his experience of managing a municipality in Russia using digital tools: Our mission is to increase the intelligence of city management systems. To implement the mission, the Lobachevsky analytical platform was developed and put into operation. The platform manages data flows received from many urban infrastructure facilities; creates information slices and allows the use of artificial intelligence. Using the platform, we receive analytics and operational information for making management decisions. Successful digitalization of the sphere of municipal government requires in-house development teams that create products taking into account the specifics and specific tasks of the department.
Nadezhda Oberemok, General Director of Sber Business Soft, in her speech continued the current topic of using artificial intelligence.
Vadim Yun, General Director of the Kryon company, spoke about practical experience in implementing artificial intelligence. The speaker highlighted standard solutions involving artificial intelligence being implemented in production, and especially noted the effectiveness of joint use with digital twin technology in predictive maintenance of equipment.
The founder of the ROBBO company, Pavel Frolov, noted the important role of training qualified personnel for the digital transformation of the economy and focused the audience’s attention on methods of attracting young specialists into engineering.
Business development manager in the CIS of Pasargad Arian Information and Communication Technology Company (FANAP) Rasuli Ruholamine revealed the experience of introducing digital technologies in the mining industry: All BRICS countries are united by the wealth of natural resources. The mining industry market is valued at one trillion rubles and brings together 10 million workers in all participating countries. All the future technologies we are talking about today can increase the productivity of manufacturing processes by up to 20 percent and reduce costs by up to 15 percent.
In his report, Behrouz Abtahi, Vice-Rector for Science and Technology at Shahid Beheshti University in Iran, presented the best practices of university interaction with industry in the era of digital transformation.
More than 30 percent of Shahid Beheshti University’s projects involve testing management systems for various government and non-government companies. The university works closely with the Ministry of Energy and the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Iran, serving as a link between the state, science and business, the speaker concluded.
After the session “Immersion in Industry 4.0. What will our life be like in the world of new technologies? At the stand of the Polytechnic University, a ceremony was held to sign a cooperation agreement between Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University and Shahid Beheshti University. The agreement is aimed at joint activities of universities in the development of advanced and digital production technologies and their implementation in the industrial practice of high-tech industries in Russia and Iran.
SPbPU students and staff also took part in the forum as listeners. Participation in the BRICS forum is a unique opportunity for young scientists and graduate students to get acquainted with the progress of projects of national importance in the context of international cooperation. For example, this is an important experience for me, since my direct work is related to advanced digital and production technologies. In addition, this is an opportunity to see how systems for managing the innovative development of organizations are formed in the context of digital transformation with the participation of a world-class expert community,” shared Irina Ponyaeva, a graduate student of the Polytechnic University, specialist in the development programs and technology consulting department of the Advanced Engineering School of SPbPU.
